You may have noticed that some Bibles list two numbers for many Psalms. You may have also noticed that sometimes a Psalm reference is often off by one. The reason for this is that the traditional Christian numbering of the Psalms (as found in the Greek Septuagint and Latin Vulgate) differ from the Hebrew numbering of the Psalms. The reason for this is that Psalms 9 and 10 in Hebrew are joined together as Psalm 9 in the Greek/Latin versions. The table below should clarifying everything:
* Psalms 9 and 10 in Hebrew are together as Psalm 9 in Greek
* Psalms 114 and 115 in Greek are Psalm 113 in Hebrew
* Psalms 114 and 115 in Greek are Psalm 116 in Hebrew
* Psalms 146 and 147 in Greek form Psalm 147 in Hebrew
* Psalms 10-112 and 116-145 (132 out of the 150) in Greek are numbered lower by one than the same psalm in Hebrew
* Psalms 1-8 and 148-150 (11 psalms in total) are numbered the same in both the Greek and Hebrew editions.
